Why the Different Photos/Models/Poses for the Same Item?

It's kind of weird that Lululemon has two different photo shoots of the same item - one for the Product Alert Emails and one for the website. I kind of like the poses in the Product Alert photos a little better. They are either more relaxed or have a bit of a sassy attitude.

Relaxed and Smiling - The product alert email photo for the Power Dance Tank. The full back view is useful information to people who are mail ordering.

I much prefer the new product elert photos. I find it frustrating that the photos on the website don't offer a clear view of the front and back of each item. It makes it really hard to see what the clothing actually looks like.

I agree! I almost always order offline and I feel like I can't see the entire item in the stiff, awkward photos on the website. And sometimes they fit the clothes so un-naturally on the models, like the pictures of the Flow and Go on the website right now. It's like the models aren't even having fun wearing the clothes...I am happy every time I put on my lulu!

I think the colors look better in the product alert photos as well!

Couple new things in Loot, but I don't know why they bothered. Fouette Tanks are marked down a whole $4 and Shanti crops a whopping $5 buck off. Lame. I've been waiting for those Shanti Crops to go down to something affordable for months now and they still haven't - even though they're in Loot. :(

Luluaddict - Is Lululemon freaking JOKING with their "sale" items right now?? Fouette Tank on sale for $54 - a whole 4 bucks off!!! A spring-color palette Astro crop on sale for $81 - ooooohh I can save $5!! What the hell? Do they think their customers are that stupid to buy things at final sale for a $3-$5 discount?? It's insulting!! I'm furious!

I think for sure that they are in the midst of standardising the product alert pics and the web site pics. Eventually, both will have the same kind of pictures, hence the new web site. I agree that the new ones look much more natural.

I made the same comment a while back that I didn't really consider it a sale when they marked the gather racebacks down by $3... you'd be surprised. They will sit on the website until someone finally buys them at the price. (Just like that infamous allegro tank!)

it's great isn't...I save a whole $5 AND I can't return it! woohoo what a deal!
btw, I think it is time for ALL the GRB's to go to loot, they've been on sale at the stores for weeks!!

Hey, I just noticed something about the site. I've had the Power Y in Haze in my shopping cart since yesterday, and when I clicked on the Power Y tanks today, Haze, Very Violet, and that Persimmon/Coal tanks were all missing. Haze is still in my cart though. Strange?

Luluaddict (and anyone else in OC) - I was at the Irvine store tonight and they did another round of markdowns! Swell jackets are $39, WWA's $44, Still Pants in Static Charcoal are $39, Power Y's, Swiftly Racerbacks, Tees, Modern Crewnecks, and Pimas are all $19 in select colors! If you can find your size, swiftly shorts and a few speed shorts were $19! AWESOME deals!

seriously, wish I knew someone who lived in OC...prices are NEVER this low at CDN. stores, these items tend to be the most popular!

I was just at Pacific Place and they're having amazing sales for their 2nd anniversary. All sport bras marked down to $24, all older tanks under $29 and all older pants under $59. Also, they had a new "happy heat tank" and reversible "(something I can't remember) cabin LS".

I heard about the reversible long sleeve t also -- would love to see a picture --its supposed to be thick -- -

It was pretty think and cozy, but the hem of the shirt was just serged and not folded over and finished, which I don't like. I think it was $68. The color i saw looked like oatmeal on one side and a color like "stitch" on the other (i know stitch is a men's color, but that's my best description). It had thumbholes.

sorry, i misspoke. it was grey, not oatmeal.

@ Michelle Q - Thanks for the heads up. I'm going to see if I can sneak in a trip tomorrow.

$3 and $5 off near $100 is so irritating. No way will I buy unless it's a bigger markdown.
